Make a holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn, France your home away from home

Tarn, a mountainous department of south west France, is situated in the Midi-Pyrenees province. Tarn is a glorious region of rural France, where the pace of life is leisurely, the culture is strong and the scenery is green and peaceful, broken only by fortified medieval towns and impressive fairytale Tarn chateaux. Holiday rental chateaus in Tarn are perfect for family holiday, extended family reunions and special occasions due to their size, space and grandeur, all at hugely good value.

Things to do on holiday in Tarn, France

As I mentioned, Tarn has a rich, traditional culture. The museums of Albi give a great insight into the history of the department, including the famous Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, dedicated to the local artist. The engineering miracle of the Millau Bridge which straddles the Tarn Gorge makes essential viewing from a Tarn gite, especially if you have hired a car to drive hundreds of metres above the ground.

The river which carved the huge Aveyron Gorge is a mecca for white water rafting and canoeing, with some of the best and most challenging stretches starting in the St Antonin area, which is a great place to take a Tarn gite or chateau if you intend to take to the river. Horse riding in Tarn is hugely popular too, with the open expanses of green open spaces lending themselves to both single day rides and long riding holidays. The mountain biking and walking in Tarn is also top class, with many marked trails across some of the most beautiful scenery to be found in the area.

There are some great golf courses in Tarn too. The course of Chateau Lasbordes in Albi is a particularly good course, but there are many excellent rounds to be had all across the department, so you will undoubtedly be able to find a good course in close proximity to your holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn.

The house, pool and gardens are just lovely, and the secluded setting is beautiful and very peaceful. The kitchen is a lot bigger than it appears in the photos, and the games room (table tennis) was a huge hit with both kids and parents! There's a large and varied selection of CD's and a quality music system in the kitchen, and as you can turn the volume up fairly loudly due to the relative isolation, we really enjoyed the 'sounds' round the pool! There's lots to see and do in the area, and Cordes (the closest main town, about a 10 min drive away) is a lovely place to explore. We had lunch 3 times in the Bistrot Cordais - food is fantastic, reasonably priced, and the staff are very friendly. Would also really recommend the longer (45 min) 'train' tour around the town and immediately surrounding area. All in all, a great holiday, and Le Muret really is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos.

We also felt that the gîte was very well and thoughtfully stocked - a mostly new and very comprehensive set of kitchen equipment, many detailed recommendations for local restaurants and sights in the welcome pack, good quality selection of books/games/DVDs, and some really lovely soaps left for us to use! We would highly recommend both this gîte and the local area, and can't wait to go back.

The views are spectacular and the house is equipped to a very high standard. There is a lovely swimming pool set in tranquil gardens. It is a wonderful venue for a family gathering with attractive sitting rooms and a large kitchen for informal eating.
